Equipment Rentals

How to Make a Film Workshop, 2014 (Yvonne Abusow)

Access and use of CSIF's production equipment and facilities are limited to CSIF members in good standing for use on independent productions where the artist retains creative and editorial control and copyright over the project.

All projects must have submitted a CSIF Project Agreement one week prior to renting.

Please note: All rentals require at minimum 48 hours notice -- a quick phone call (403.205.4747) or email will do the trick. 

All projects that utilize CSIF equipment or facility resources must provide a final cut of the film for archiving, as well as on-set still images for CSIF promotional purposes. All films must include a black or white CSIF logo in the credits.

Any project that wishes to access the CSIF equipment bank must be in harmony with the mission statement and equity policy of the CSIF.


Associate Member rates are for Associate Members in good standing, who have been members of CSIF for more than 1 month, and have not completed their 20 hours of volunteer time to the Society. Associate members must be able to demonstrate proficiency with the rental equipment.

Production Members in good standing receive a premium rental rate in return for their continued support of a minimum of 20 volunteer hours per year. Production Member Rates only apply to the member’s own, artist-driven projects and cannot be applied to commercial projects or projects of another individual or CSIF Associate Member.
